Greg has brought a new brand of energy and commitment to an existing industry based on a simple principal; transport people who can’t transport themselves from point A to point B, with dignity, compassion, immediate response and in a very cool, modernly equipped fleet of vehicles. Greg leads UpLift Transport through extraordinary customer service, ownership vision, the ability to pivot and react to opportunities as they arise and an unparalleled level of grit and passion. Greg is an authentic individual who has a powerful passion and purpose that emanates from his core, positively affecting all his business and personal interactions. A veteran that served his country, Greg continues to serve his community in a wide variety of volunteer capacities. Greg is part of the U.S. Veterans Business Alliance (USVBA) and Recently, Greg was privileged to donate his entire fleet of vehicles to the transportation of elder veterans who had served in WWII during the Hail to the Heroes celebration at the Pacific Symphony Amphitheatre. He made sure they were all transported to and from the event, safely and respectfully. He is constantly looking for service opportunities related to veteran’s affairs.

He also spends time serving as a Cub Scout Den leader and volunteering in his son’s classroom and soccer club, which serving as a role-model and father is one of the most heroic acts one can embark upon. Greg is a true leader and inspiration as an individual and in the business community! Please accept this nomination on my behalf, Respectfully, Brian C.
